Riot is reverting some of the scoreboard changes they made in Patch 13.9.

League of Legends is still one of the most popular titles on the market despite being released more than ten years ago. And the reason the League has remained at the top is because of Riot’s Game’s willingness to change the game constantly. They update the game very often, adding new content, champions, skins, and even game modes.

This year alone, we got tons of changes. We received mini-reworks for champions such as Neeko, Yuumi, Aurelion Sol, Kayle, ASU for Ahri, a new champion named Milio, new skins, and many other changes. The changes made by Riot are usually positive, and they make the game fun and exciting.

However, Riot sometimes implements adjustments that are detrimental to the game and outright degrade the user experience. The most recent adjustments to the scoreboard UI are one of these changes.

A crucial element of the League of Legends experience is the scoreboard. It assists in keeping tabs on the equipment, kills, gold, CS number, muting players, and other statistics of your team and the opposition. Being such an essential tool for the game, it needs to be clean and efficient, which it was until Riot recently changed it.

Riot in Patch 13.9 changed the scoreboard UI. They made it harder to mute other players, mute themselves, and even removed the ability to see if a player was missing. The changes were received very poorly and received tons of backlash. Thus, Riot is changing the scoreboard again.

In this article, we will review proposed changes to the scoreboard.

Upcoming Scoreboard UI Changes

Riot Barack Probama recently shared some details about the changes that are coming to the scoreboard UI.

First of all, Riot is bringing back the ability to see whether a player is missing through the scoreboard. Previously it was possible to see if a player was missing through a missing mark beside their icon. It was recently removed, but they are bringing it back.

They are swapping the position of self-mute and mute all buttons. This should help with some of the frustrations of self-muting instead of muting all. And lastly, they are making it easier to mute other players.

Release Date

The release date for scoreboard UI changes has not been revealed yet, but it will likely come in Patch 13.10, which is scheduled to release on Wednesday, May 17, 2023.
